Paradigms

A paradigm is the way you see something; it's your point of view, frame of reference, or belief. Paradigms are like glasses. 

Sometimes our paradigms are way off the mark, and as a result, they can create limitations in our life.

For instance: if you believe you're weak in maths, that very belief will make you really weak though you have potentials .
